Step:4 Heat a tawa or griddle and spread some oil. you can also use a non stick pan. Take the batter in a large serving spoon. Pour the batter and spread it gently. don’t spread too much.

Step5: when the batter is still raw from the top, add the vegetable mixture. Gently press the onions-tomatoes with the spatula, so that they stick to the batter. Drizzle some oil on the sides and the top.


when the base is cooked and lightly browned, flip gently. Cook till the onions and tomatoes are light golden in colour and is soft.

Flip and serve hot. if you want you can flip a couple of times too for even cooking. For making plain dosa cook the them without any toppings.
